Student correspondent shadows Sen. Jacque

On November 5th through the 6th, I interned for the Door County Wisconsin, District 1 Senator, André Jacque. I had the opportunity to both shadow and work in the Jacque office to learn about the daily routine of a Senator. 
On the first day of the internship, I shadowed Senator Jacque on the Senate floor and to an Assembly meeting. Sitting next to the media, directly behind the Door County Senator, gave an excellent view of the busy, debate filled Senate. 
On the second day, I was based in the office and tasked with writing op-ed for one of André Jacque's Bills. The communications director, Evan Hafenbreadl, of the office, helped with explaining how the office functions as a support system for its Senator.


I return from this internship with a new-found knowledge of how our government operates from my behind the scenes look. The affairs in Madison addressed by the legislative branch happen in a well-discussed manor, but evidently is a slow process. It is clear that there is not just one person who doesn't just make the decisions, but there is a just and complex system that runs through the media, offices, representatives, senators before the governor himself. Through this, I appreciate the accomplishments that have been made thus far in our Wisconsin Government. I appreciate the opportunity to share my support and opinions with my District Senator.
